This was a creative outlet for me for a few years and I finished it in 2012. I initially raised some money on Kickstarter, and was one of the first funded animated shorts on the site I think! I got to show a clip at their first Kickstarter Film Festival on a rooftop in Brooklyn, NY.

Thematically this was a way for me to process a time of depression in my life. It became a way to reflect on that time and learn from it and put it behind me.

I chose to not show it to my peers until it was finished, not getting any feedback all the way through production. I wanted to try it as an experiment and probably wont do that again. You miss so much when you isolate your work from other people's input.
